    I'm looking to change my wood balustrade to glass. I can't find anything regarding regulations or anything. I have a staircase with a small corner and then the landing. Do i need to use a certain amount of glass clamps? To measure for the glass do i measure the gap and then the angle and then deduct 20mm for each clamp? Not sure the best way to get an accurate piece of glass. For the main staircase it's going to be 2 sections of glass. How big should the gap be between the 2? Thank you for the advice.

    We’re looking to fit new skirting, the old skirting we had was 45mm our new skirting is 119mm but the issue we have are the pipes for the radiators. They’re quite low down which is causing a problem with how high the new skirting is. How would we tackle this problem? Jigsaw the skirting to fit round the pipes? Or try and slot the skirting behind the pipes by removing the radiator temporarily?

    I have lots of old wooden planks from a decking that was disassembled years ago. Long story short, some of them never made it to the tip and they’ve just been sitting in the shed. I would like to make something with them as a DIY project, might as well put them to use. Is there anything I’ll need to do first to ensure that they are not harmful, infested with bugs, etc.? They look fine on the surface but I want to be sure. What should I treat the wood with before using it as construction material for household fittings?
